NY Photo Manipulation

It was a large part of my job to make many images and graphics presentable. We receive hundreds of images a week and many of them have poor lighting, bad angles or faded coloring. It has been my job to make many of these web or print ready for years, though there are also quite a few where it would be the perfect shot if someone had bothered taking out the trash. Like the image shown here. There have been times I have had to manipulate a whole display, walls and units matching the shadows and lighting to remove whole people, or adding whole sections. One such project had me chasing a Gatorade bottle out of every shot that had been taken of a store.  This is also done with many human subjects as well with the understanding we all want to look our best, but many of us where not born Maybelline models. I will refrain from posting those to protect the innocent of course.
